I just checked out the latest numbers on AMR's corporate website, and checked out the fleet statistics, last updated January, 2004. As UniTED stated, AA
has 152 widebodies: 45 772s, 34 A300s, 58 763s and 15 762s. They have the largest widebody (and total fleet) of any passenger airline.
-80 = 335
738 = 77
752 = 140
F100 = 38
Total fleet size: 742 (including Eagle: 972)
I was curious to break it down by fleet type, and AA
is currently the largest operator of the 752 and MD
-80, and the second largest operator of the 738 and 772 (tied with BA
). (All based on delivered aircraft, not total orders.) I was trying to determine where AA
stood with the A300-600 but Airbus' statistics aren't as precise as Boeing's, only listing total ordered and delivered, not breaking it down by customer and sub-type like Boeing does.
